The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is considering suspending its ongoing industrial action soon.

It was gathered that the striking lecturers are currently considering suspending the three months strike.

A member of the union who spoke to the media outlet in confidence said the suspension may last for just three months.

He added that negotiations with the Federal Government would continue during the grace period.

He said the failure of the government to meet the demands of ASUU within the three months would lead to an indefinite strike.

This is coming a few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari appealed to the union to consider the suffering of students and call off the strike.

It was earlier reported that the meeting between ASUU and federal government officials on Thursday night ends in deadlock.

The union commenced a warning strike on February 14 over the inability of the Federal Government to meet its demands and implement some agreements the two parties entered into previously.

The industrial action was on Monday, May 9,extended by another 12 weeks, which is expected to elapse on August 9.
